Aloe and Myrrh: modern day analysis of two ancient herbs

By Arif Khan .. Edited by Jonathan Ghaffar
Aloe and Myrrh are mentioned in the Gospel as being present immediately after the body of Hadhrat Isa (Jesus) was tended to by Nicodemus and Joseph of Arimathea; the presence of these medicinal plants has often been explained by Christian scholars as being part of an embalming process, whereas Hadhrat Masih Ma’ud (Mirza Ghulam Ahmad) in his treatise “Masih Hindustan Mein” (“Jesus in India”) described how they were essential ingredients for an ointment applied to Jesus’ wounds.

been wounded, and he wished to portray this in some manner....
